Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had nightmares that pretty much kicked my ass. I don’t know why. My childhood wasn’t really any more traumatic than the usual. Where things take a turn for the weird here is that unlike seemingly everyone else in the world, I can’t wake up from them. Yeah, it’s pretty much as bad as it sounds. It’s not all wet sheets and sobs though! As a result of this little glitch, I stumbled upon lucid dreaming pretty early on. Basically, a lucid dream happens when you become conscious of dreaming. When you catch on, you can start to pull the strings from within…kind of, it doesn’t always work out perfectly. Lucid dreamers usually have what’s called a dreamsign, or something that signals you to the fact that you are dreaming. For whatever reason, my dream sign is Meg Ryan, the beloved rom com queen of the 90′s. I don’t know why, but I suspect it has to do with compulsive viewings of Top Gun as a child. My young mind heard: “Take me to bed or lose me forever!” And damned if I didn’t do just that! I suppose I’m lucky that Tom Cruise doesn’t saunter around in my dreamscape, (shirtless, with a volleyball in hand and a beckoning smile.) Anyway, I’ve decided to try and illustrate some of my dreams here for your amusement. You’re welcome. - Napoléon Dûheme

Sorry for the long lag between postings! I’ve had an unexpectedly eventful few months as of late, but I’m still determined to deliver your dose of comic goodness!

Let me fill you in on the goings on in my life (I brought visual aids, because you know, visual aides are kind of what I do.)

I’ll start with the bad news…

A close friend of my family was recently diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. She was expected to go a few weeks ago, but has been hanging on (there’s of course both positives and negatives to that.)

She’s been really important to me, and always supportive of my odd ideas about life. When I first announced that I was going to self publish my comics and start selling my artwork, on http://www.lostbreadcomic.com she sent me a card in the mail. Inside was the message “I’m excited to get in on the ground floor of your new business venture!” and a check for $1000. I wish I had been able to get the 2nd book out a little faster, but I made a sketch to celebrate her life, friendship, and support (she’s the one on the right, I’m the one on the left.)

Now the good news! My baby nephew was born on at September 18th at 2:22am. (If anyone knows the synchronistic significance of that let me know.) He’s a sizeable lad at 8lbs .27 ounces and 21 inches long (I still have him beat, with a birth weight of 8lbs 5 ounces, and height of 22 inches, I’m still the champ!) He’s also extra cute. It’s hard to capture just how cute he is in a sketch, but here’s my attempt!

Guess what else! I’d also like to announce that I will hopefully be airing a Pod Drama I wrote, called Creeping Wave radio on October 16th (I mean, if all goes well.) It’s been a lot of work, but I feel pretty confident in this 9 episode series, and will be bringing you more info as the drop sate approaches. Till then, take a peak at some of the title art for upcoming episodes!

Yep, that’s Adam, Cyrus and my radiantly beautiful self…also this

Yes, that is the dashing Jestin Sallas on the right, and we got all the top talent, but I don’t want to give too much away just yet!

And now back to our regularly schedule shenanigans. In the last episode of Lost Bread: Cloud Mummies, Meg Ryan saved me from falling to my doom, after an attacking  pterosaur started disintegrating and fell from the sky, knocking me off the balloon I was riding.

7 Easter Eggs in this one, each hand rendered with Grimerican love.

-Happy Hunting,

Nap

P.S.- I love you.

A little late this week, sorry about that. The art style I’m using for this segment takes a little longer, but I really want to emphasis the idea that the dream is slowly becoming my reality.

Last week, Meg Ryan reemerged to save me from splattering on the Continue reading

In last week’s episode I tried to take down a pterosaur and accidentally stabbed my ex, Josie in the chest… at least I think it was an accident, can knives have Freudian slips?

Only 4 Easter Eggs in this one, because they’re especially tricky this time, which is why I’m putting off shout outs till next week (I don’t want anyone getting lost in the mayhem!)

Also, the triumphant return of a very special 90’s starlette! Continue reading

What kind of idiot brings a knife to an aerial assault by pterosaurs? ME!

Six Easter Eggs in this issue with two shout outs to the glory of Old New England, Talamh!

It should go without saying, but I do not advocate the acts of violence you are about to see depicted, at least not in real life anyway. Thank you. Continue reading

Hello again! Did you miss me!? I had to take a week off, but I’m BACK!

Last episode posed the age old question, how do three people standing on a balloon fight a flock of pterodactyls?

This weeks shout out goes to Grimerican and psychotherapist John Norris, whose very business is unraveling the conundrum of the human mind. Look out for Jungian and Freudian symbolism, as this weeks 15 Easter Eggs, (yeah I’m making up for that last week) are largely devoted to the work of these two explorers of the subconscious realm.

Sorry to get this up so late in the week! I got attacked last minute with work for a couple other projects I’ve taken on, that I hope will be ready to share soon! Much like how our heroes were being attacked by pterodactyls/pterosaurs last week!

5 Easter Eggs in this one, all very mysterious, much like Graham. Speaking of Graham… while little is known of his shrouded past, legend has it that he was born in the Canadian Summer, though it is hotly debated as to which month Continue reading

Sooo, pterodactyls injuries aren’t that big of a deal right?

This week’s installment brings you seven spicy Easter Eggs, including 3 shout outs that steadfast Grimerican and international man of mystery Todd Marco, who all the kids are talking about. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a guest appearance by a preternaturally shapely calf. Continue reading

Last week, the gang found themselves under assault by a flock of flying pterosaurs! Will they escape unscathed!?! That wouldn’t make for very interesting reading now, would it!?

7 Easter Eggs lurking, including 3 shout outs to that wily Infant Sorceress and lover of awesome stuff known to mere mortals on Twitter as VeyKaytplanetEarth! Continue reading

In our last episode, death by deflated balloon was narrowly avoid, only for another threat to rear its fearsome head. What could it be!?!

7 Easter Eggs in this one, which is rife with Illuminati symbolism, and 2 shout-outs to Grimerican Nickie Benefield, the 57 year old, oxygen loving scamp from Kentucky, who has won all of our hearts!

Nickie!

The owls are not what they seem!

Nickie takes to the skies!

Black and white checkerboard, Illuminati symbolism, the contest of dark vs light!

All seeing eye.

Moai!

Mothman, he’s always lurking!

Last week I forcefully directed The Robert! to abandon our faltering balloon by means of a swift kick to the chest. I’m not really the type to take control in these situations, so its very likely I just made things infinitely worse!

7 Easter eggs in this one, with 3 shout outs to Grimerican, Cyrus Salsbury, the white haired wonder of UPS, delivering splendor to your very doorstep. Cyrus has been integral in the inspiration of a side project I’m working on, and despite his busy schedule, I hope he’ll see these shout outs and accept a very hearty thank you!

A UPS balloon, shout out to Cyrus!

 

Lunar lander, another shoutout to Cyrus, who will set you straight on the moon landing!

Cyrus in the sky!

 

Graham Dunlop in flight, afternoon delight!

 

May the rugged beauty of Red Pill Junkie, loom ominously above you, always!

 

Pants moai!

Sleeve moai.
